Funeral scheduled for 1 of 2 slain Iowa cousins

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A funeral is scheduled this weekend for one of two cousins abducted in Evansdale and later found dead.

The service for Elizabeth Collins is scheduled to begin 11 a.m. Saturday at Waterloo Memorial Park Cemetery. The funeral will be open to the public.

Television station KWWL (http://bit.ly/12x3JDf ) reports the funeral service is being held now because the state medical examiner had been conducting an autopsy on Elizabeth and her cousin, Lyric Cook.

The cousins went missing in July after riding their bikes by Meyers Lake in Evansdale. Hunters found their bodies in a wooded area in December.

A private funeral service for Lyric was held last month. Minor construction has begun on a permanent memorial near where the girls were last seen alive.
